The University of Sussex Students' Union (USSU) has once again achieved the highest award of "Excellent" in the NUS sustainability scheme, Green Impact.
Just 15 of the 70 participating students' unions were awarded Excellent.
Each year since 2012 the USSU has achieved the highest award, and we are extremely pleased to say that this year is no exception.
The Green Impact scheme showcases the amazing sustainability work done by students' unions all over the country. It aims to structure the work done by students' unions to not only monitor their own environmental impact, but to work with their university, community and students to create positive change through their environmental work.
A number of teams across campus participate in the Green Impact scheme, including Sussex Estates and Facilities (SEF), BMEC, SussexSport and SussexFood. Having the support of teams from The University and SEF makes possible projects such as The Freshers' Free Shop.
The Students' Union was awarded "Excellent" for projects such as the Free Shop, our work in helping the University become Fossil Free, and improving cycling facilities on campus.
